  • subclavian artery
  • A computed tomogram was performed, revealing a subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm that compressed the brachial plexus ( Figs. 1 A to 1 D). A few days later, an endovascular covered self-expanding stent was successfully placed, excluding the pseudoaneurysm ( Figs. 1 E to 1 H). Chest pain disappeared, and the patient was discharged uneventfully. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm is a well-described complication as an inadvertent arterial puncture following central venous catheterization ( 2 ). (onlinejacc.org)
  • There are a few reported cases of subclavian artery dissection complicating mammary artery graft catheterization performed via the transfemoral approach ( 3 ), but to our knowledge, this is the first description of a subclavian pseudoaneurysm complicating a transradial artery cardiac catheterization. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Technical difficulties are because of loops and tortuosity of the radial and the subclavian artery, anatomical variations in radial artery, and radial spasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • arterial
  • Selective intra-arterial digital subtraction angiography of the brachiocephalic arteries using the right brachial artery approach was successfully performed for 169 of 173 patients, 33 of whom were outpatients. (biomedsearch.com)
  • two of them elderly hypertensive men with tortuous brachial arteries, and two of them middle-aged obese women for whom arterial puncture could not be performed. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Selective catheterizations of both common carotid arteries were successfully performed in all but one patient, a woman whose aberrant right subclavian artery prevented bilateral common carotid arterial catheterizations. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Arterial diameter of the brachial artery in longitudinal plane from images where there is clear visualization of anterior and posterior intimal/lumen interface will be determined by caliper measurement. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The largest arterial trunk is the aorta aorta , primary artery of the circulatory system in mammals, delivering oxygenated blood to all other arteries except those of the lungs. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • But unfortunately these volume changes are not linearly correlated with the arterial pressure- especially when measured in the periphery, where the access to the arteries is easy. (wikipedia.org)
  • These volume changes must be transformed into pressure, because of the non-linearity of the elastic components of the arterial wall as well as the non-elastic parts of the smooth muscles of the finger artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • The method is to unload the arterial wall in order to linearize this phenomenon with a counter pressure as high as the pressure inside the artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, ABPI has known issues: ABPI is known to be unreliable on patients with arterial calcification (hardening of the arteries) which results in less or incompressible arteries, as the stiff arteries produce falsely elevated ankle pressure, giving false negatives). (wikipedia.org)
  • Pulse
  • The pulsating movement of blood, or pulse pulse, alternate expansion and contraction of artery walls as heart action varies blood volume within the arteries. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Measured by the Doppler wand, the inflation continues until the pulse in the artery ceases. (wikipedia.org)
  • When the artery's pulse is re-detected through the Doppler probe the pressure in the cuff at that moment indicates the systolic pressure of that artery. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a normal subject the pressure at the ankle is slightly higher than at the elbow (there is reflection of the pulse pressure from the vascular bed of the feet, whereas at the elbow the artery continues on some distance to the wrist). (wikipedia.org)
  • deep
  • It gives rise to the deep brachial artery, which curves around the back of the humerus to supply blood to the triceps muscles. (innerbody.com)
  • We report a case of a 49-year-old male who developed a deep brachial artery pseudoaneurysm following an arthroscopic shoulder debridement and lysis of adhesions. (ovid.com)
  • A review of the literature demonstrates that pseudoaneurysm formation after arthroscopic procedures is rare and pseudoaneurysms of the deep brachial artery have yet to be reported. (ovid.com)
  • Here it travels with the deep artery of the arm, which sits in the radial groove of the humerus. (wikipedia.org)
  • doppler
  • Doppler recordings of blood flow velocity during hyperemia were analysed in the brachial artery. (diva-portal.org)
  • Ultrasonographic doppler measurements of the Brachial artery were made on the 1016 men and women aged 70 included in the prospective investigation of the vasculature in Uppsala seniors (PIVUS) study. (diva-portal.org)
  • superior
  • Blood flow volume in the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and brachial artery (BA), the heart rate and the blood pressure were measured at rest, 15 min after starting thermal stimulation and 10, 20, 30 and 40 min after completing thermal stimulation. (hindawi.com)
  • Under normal conditions, the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) blood flow pattern and velocity show large variations due to the metabolic activity of the bowel [ 18 - 20 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • atherosclerosis
  • Here, we investigated the relations between SDFV in the brachial artery and different characteristics of carotid atherosclerosis. (diva-portal.org)
  • CONCLUSION: Our results indicate that the hyperemic systolic to diastolic blood flow velocity ratio in the brachial artery is related to atherosclerosis in the carotid artery. (diva-portal.org)
  • Provided that there are no other significant conditions affecting the arteries of the leg, the following ABPI ratios can be used to predict the severity of PAD as well as assess the nature and best management of various types of leg ulcers: Studies in 2006 suggests that an abnormal ABPI may be an independent predictor of mortality, as it reflects the burden of atherosclerosis.
